I stayed at this property from August 15, 2014-August 18, 2014. There were 3 people in my group. Two people in another group. There was a long check in line. No problem...this is a vacation and everything is in slow motion. We were offered a cool drink. After checking in, we headed to our room. We grabbed our own luggage... More

Well, I will start with the transportation from the airport it was very confusing and unorganized. When the driver stopped at the hotel I wasn't sure if I was getting off at the right place, but after talking to the greeter he said I was at the right place, because there was no way in hell I was getting off...

Having recently just came back from the Riu Montego bay me and my partner had an amazing time. The hotel was clean and all staff friendly, especially Dwayne and Rory ( they were always looking after us around the pool and couldn't do enough for us). The food was gorgeous at all meal times, so any complaints that you read... More

Just came back from Riu, Montego Bay. This is the third visit to Montego Bay for my wife and I. Before Riu we stayed at Iberostar and Grand Palladium. My wife's co-worker stayed at Riu and spoke highly of it, so we planned a couple's vacation. 3 couples in Jamaica for 8 days 7 nights. The hotel is beautiful. Staff... More

We recently got married on the resort and took 30 people with us. The rooms were to be grouped together, they were not. The wedding planner was terrible. Told us the day before wedding we owed $500 more. Sound system went so none of our guests heard our vows. One of our rooms was broken into and security did nothing... More

I'm not one to write reviews about my vacations but I must say that my stay at the Riu Montego Bay in Jamaica was definitely a trip that left me wanting to experience more and see what else Jamaica has in store. The daily entertainment staff at the pool and beach was phenomenal. We were greeted with smiles every morning... More

Im glad I just went ahead and kept our reservation. Rooms were okay just basic really but served it's purpose cleaned everyday and fridge restocked. Found a very nice employee who let... More

My experience at the hotel was not very pleasant. I originally requested transportation and to have two rooms that were next to each other in my original reservation. None of these accommdations were met. There was no clear direction for who to speak with upon arrival at the airport so my friends and I ended up catching a taxi cab... More
